Whitehaven's Jasmine Carson sets 3-point record for Shelby County

From Commercial Appeal

Jasmine Carson started fast and never cooled off Thursday night.

The junior from Whitehaven scored 46 points and set a Shelby County record with 14 3-pointers as the Tigers, ranked sixth in The Commercial Appeal Dandy Dozen, defeated overmatched Overton in a 16-AAA contest, 125-30.

The 3-pointers broke the old mark of 13 set by Southwind's Bianca Cage against Kirby during the 2011-12 season.

Carson went 5 for 5 from beyond the arc and scored 17 points in the first four minutes as Whitehaven took control against an Overton team that has been depleted by the loss of a large senior class from last year and a couple of key transfer departures. She finished the game 15 of 24 from the field (13 of 22 on 3s) while adding nine assists and 11 steals.

Carson transferred to Whitehaven after helping Central advance to the AAA semifinals last year.

The national record for 3-pointers in a game is Rebecca Greenwell of Owensboro (Ky.) Catholic in 2013. Carson's total ties the state record set by Kendall Spray of Wilson Central in 2015.

Shmya Ward had 24 points and 13 rebounds for Whitehaven while Alexus Ward scored 23 with five steals.
